You can only Connect a iPod via a iPod dock
Apple iPod Univeral Dock
and use either
Apple Composite AV Cable or Apple Component AV Cable
based on what Output you iPod Allows.
the list of which iPod that is supported is listed on each page of the AV Cables above.
You can use a IR Blaster Cable with the iPod Dock to control the iPod also.

Below is solution from an earlier post, I'm trying it out now as I have the same issue, system bought in Jan 09. I have received and installed the latest update from Bose recently, now this. Will call Bose tomorrow to fix if they can't they will be getting it back.
We disabled the power cord from the back of the media console (where the HDMI cables connect) and left it off for a minute or two.
Powered the media console back on and it is working as expected.
Was told by the Bose tech that the common reason for this issue is due to the use of the HDMI cables that have a propritary security protocol that is used between the media console and the component it is attached to (ie TV, Cable/Sat, BluRay ...ect).
I asked if there was a BIOS upgrade if it was indeed a "handshaking" issue and was told there was not one (yet).
If one becomes available, it will be shipped via mail on a CD\DVD that can be used in a CD\DVD player that is connected to the media console using the HDMI cable.

I have a Lifestyle 48 and called Bose today. It is possible all you need is a cord that is a 35mm headphone jack on one side and RCA jacks on the other. You plug it into the AUX jack in the back of your system and the headphone jack in the Ipod headphone spot. I got the cord at Best Buy for ten bucks. It works GREAT!

Actually, you can do this. Just get an optical to RCA converter.
This looks like a good one: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-40019-Optical-Converter/dp/B0002GV876/ref=pd_cp_e_2
